"The man everybody talk about"George Bush? Me? Naw.
The Thugs Win the CaseWell, no shit. "If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns".
Operating under the notion that it's better to beg forgiveness than to ask permission, our shooters long ago decided not to wait for the high court's thoughts on the matter. They simply arrogated to themselves the right to keep and bear arms and, with that right, license to shoot and kill, with impunity, whatever and whenever the evil spirits moved them.
The record will show that our home-grown shooters have blown through the city's so-called strict handgun ban like John Riggins going up the middle.No shit. The responsible, law-abiding citizen wasn't able to have a gun, so guess who did?
...the dudes who have been blowing away their fellow citizens with abandon since the law was put on the books 32 years ago.Yup. And now would-be targets of these fucks will have the ability to shoot back.
And to make sure that D.C. gun owners are free to fire their loaded handguns at will, the Supreme Court went one step further and killed the city's sensible requirement that weapons be equipped with trigger locks.Yup. Will, Bob, Fred, ..., anyone who presents a threat.
So now it has come to pass that D.C. residents can keep handguns, as well as rifles and shotguns, in their homes. A well armed, informal militia we shall be -- ready to fire back in self-defense at the shooters who believed they had the right to their guns all along.
Corn farmers' hopes are dashed by the floodFucking greedy bastards. That's just what we need. We start making ethanol out of corn and instead of oil barons, we will now have corn barons.
By DAVID PITT, Associated Press Writer Wed Jun 25, 1:32 PM ET
DES MOINES, Iowa - This year's corn crop was Bill Talsma's lottery ticket — a potentially record-setting haul worth millions.
Then came the flood.
The raging rivers and streams destroyed nearly a quarter of the crop Talsma and his brother were growing on about 75 percent of their 9,000 acres in Iowa, and drenching rains damaged the rest. Had all his corn come in, Talsma could have seen a profit of as much as $6 million.

SALT LAKE CITY - Sadie and Pyper Vance have had just about enough of high gas prices. The sisters are still years away from being old enough to drive, but that doesn't mean the $4 per gallon price tag isn't hitting them as hard as anyone else.
Cable TV was one of the family's budget-cutting casualties, leaving Sadie, 9, and her 7-year-old sister without their favorite cartoons and shows.

Flooding is global warming at workBlah, blah, blah, .... Global Warming™ blah, blah, blah, ...
By AMY GOODMAN
The floodwaters are rising, swamping cities, breaching levees. Tens of thousands are displaced. Many are dead. No, I am not talking about Hurricane Katrina, but about the Midwest United States. As the floodwaters head south along the Mississippi, devastating communities one after another, the media are overflowing with televised images of the destruction.
While the TV meteorologists document "extreme weather" with their increasingly sophisticated toolbox, from Doppler radar to 3-D animated maps, the two words rarely uttered are its cause: global warming.
"What a moroon."Couldn't have said it better myself.
"Do you know what else emits tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere? Printing newspapers on perfectly good trees. Maybe Congress should tax the PI until they switch to the environmentally friendly all-digital format. Of course, they’d have to fire 90 percent of their workforce, but, think of all the ice that will save at the North Pole!"Then what would I wipe my ass with?
"With global warming we get floods, droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, meteors falling out of the sky, World Cup soccer games, too much government, lying politicians, idiot voters who choose to believe them, Israelis and Palistinians killing each other, jobs being outsourced for cheap labor, war, famine, pestilence, and death!Bwah!
Without global warming we get floods, droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, meteors falling out of the sky, World Cup soccer games, too much government, lying politicians, idiot voters who choose to believe them, Israelis and Palistinians killing each other, jobs being outsourced for cheap labor, war, famine, pestilence, and death!"
"It took the Catholic Church hundreds of years to develop corrupt practices such as papal indulgences. The global warming religion has barely been around for 20 years, and yet its devotees are allowed to pollute by the simple expedient of paying for papal indulgences called "carbon offsets."Again I say, Bwah!
The moment anyone diverges from official church doctrine on global warming, he/she is threatened with destruction. Heretics would be burnt at the stake if the Greenhouse Zealots could figure out how to do it in a "carbon neutral" way."
"What is the government doing about it? We can't just sit around and let these crazy deniers run our government. Look at how they are handling the gas crisis (which is linked to warming.)"Uh, yeah.
"this article is a perfect example of how Enviro-nuts are even more dangerous than Islamo-facists."No shit. Enviro-nuts are the ones responsible for the gas crisis.
"Its the republicans fault. We all know that they blow up levees and hate the poor. The purposely pollute the water so everyone is sick.Now that dude should be running for president.
No floods, warming, cooling, natural disasters ever happened until the evil founding fathers of this selfish country created the Declaration of Independence.
The reduction in solar activity is being done by NASA on President Bush's orders, along with the climate change on Jupiter and Mars.
Let's elect Obama, he will put everything back in order. No cars, no electricity, no answers to how to solve the energy crisis in the next 20-30 years."
"Is there a reason why anybody would believe anything said by an avowed Marxist liar like Amy Goodman?"Can't think of one.

Anyone surprised? I'm not.Your Social Security
Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary,
2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program,
3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year,
4.) That the money the participants put into the independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and,
5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.
Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month -- and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to 'put away' -- you may be interested in the following:
Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?
A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democrat controlled House and Senate.
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
A: The Democrat Party.
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
A: The Democrat Party, with Al Gore casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US.
Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
AND MY FAVORITE:
A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democrat Party.
immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!
Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

UN Chief: Saudi to Boost Oil ProductionHey! This dude's all right! It looks like someone is maybe going to do something to help out with this high gas price bullshit.
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia plans to increase its oil production by 200,000 barrels a day next month, the kingdom's oil minister told U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon on Sunday, according to Ban's spokesman.
"The king believes that the current oil prices are abnormally high, and he is ready to restore prices to their appropriate levels," SPA quoted Ban as telling reporters in Jiddah. The report carried by SPA was in Arabic, and it did not say what language Ban spoke in.Damn tootin' prices are too high. And as you already know, high gas prices mean higher prices for everything else. What a nice guy!
Saudi Arabia is concerned that sustained high oil prices will eventually slacken the world's appetite for oil, affecting the kingdom in the long run.Ah, there's the rub. We quit using oil, he goes broke. Too bad they can't grow corn over there, eh?

Petrobras studying block in deep Cuban watersSo we have several countries who will be drilling around Canada and in the Gulf of Mexico, but yet America has its fat ass planted firmly on its own reserves of oil and natural gas. What the fuck? You do realize that this is a huge step toward making Cuba rich, right? Fucking Cuba is going to be a wealthy, spoiled little brat just like the dusty, wind-blown assholes we're dealing with on the other side of the planet. Great. And they're right next door.
HAVANA, Cuba (Reuters): Brazilian state oil company Petrobras is studying a block in deep Cuban waters for possible exploration as part of broader cooperation with the Caribbean island, a top advisor to the company said on Friday.
"We are planning to cooperate not only in exploration and production, but lubricants, refining and training," Andre Ghirardi told Reuters in Havana at a one-day meeting of Brazilian and Cuban businessmen.
"We are working on the possibility of exploring a block in the Gulf of Mexico, but negotiations have not ended, they are advancing," he said.
Interest in Cuba's Gulf of Mexico blocks has picked up as oil prices soar.
Seven foreign companies have signed exploration agreements with Cuban state oil company CUPET for 28 of the 59 blocks available in the deep Gulf of Mexico waters of Cuba's economic exclusion zone fronting the United States.
The US Geological Survey estimated the North Cuba basin could contain 4.6 billion barrels of oil, with a high-end potential of 9.3 billion barrels, and close to 1 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
Ghirardi said negotiations to build a lubricants plant in Cuba were going well, though no agreement had been signed.
Venezuela's PDVSA has become a major player in the Cuban oil industry.
PDVSA and Cuba have started up and are expanding a Soviet-built oil refinery in central Cienfuegos province and modernizing another in eastern Santiago de Cuba.
The two companies have formed joint ventures in refining and shipping.
PDVSA has also taken out blocks in the gulf, as have Spain's Repsol-YPF, India's ONGC and Nordsk Hydro, Vietnam state oil and gas group Petrovietnam, Malaysia's state-run Petronas and Canada's Sherritt International.
The director of exploration for CUPET said this year that activity was picking up in Cuba's deep waters.
"Right now seismic studies are under way on 2,300 square kilometers and very soon three-dimensional studies will begin on 4,500 square kilometers in the Gulf of Mexico," Rafael Tenreyro said.
Cuba produces the equivalent in oil and gas of 75,000 barrels per day, around 50 percent of its energy needs, importing the remainder from oil-rich ally Venezuela on preferential terms in exchange for health, education and other services.
- Caribbean Net News -
With average gas prices across the country approaching $4 a gallon, it may be hard to believe, but the U.S. Senate is considering legislation this week that will further drive up the cost at the pump.I just don't understand it.
The Senate is debating a global warming bill that will create the largest expansion of the federal government since FDR’s New Deal, complete with a brand new, unelected bureaucracy. The Lieberman-Warner bill (America’s Climate Security Act) represents the largest tax increase in U.S. history and the biggest pork bill ever contemplated with trillions of dollars in giveaways. Well-heeled lobbyists are already plotting how to divide up the federal largesse. The handouts offered by the sponsors of this bill come straight from the pockets of families and workers in the form of lost jobs, higher gas, power and heating bills, and more expensive consumer goods.

From the Fredericksburg Police Department Crime Blotter:What the fuck?
A male subject who was not acquainted with the three friends walked out of the store and verbally challenged the male who was pumping gas, then threw a rock at him which struck him in the neck.
The reporting party ran towards the subject and the subject grabbed a fish out of his car and threw it at him, hitting him in the face. The subject next grabbed a beer bottle and threw it at the SUV; he then pulled his pants down and exposed himself to the three friends before leaving the area in a blue car.
While Coleman was being led to the police cruiser in handcuffs, he spit on a male subject who was standing nearby.
